    Yeah and WRAL can't be bothered to mention that in the police report they were both identified as BLACK males.

    I did not know Subways were such cash cows. You would think a bank would be a better choice ?

    These guys must be desperate. Probably didn't even get enough to fill their gas tank so I'd bet they strike again.

    "Suspects of the robbers were vague."

    Need to fix that.

    The descriptions you gave lead me to believe I should be looking for two men, one white and one black. Is this correct?
